Seminoles Hurricanes Betting Odds
Few teams have been more impressive than the Florida State Seminoles. Oddsmakers certainly have taken notice.
The Seminoles opened as 21-point favorites over an undefeated Miami Hurricanes team. Florida State has won three of the last four meetings straight-up, but only covered the spread once in that stretch.
But this is the best Seminoles team in a long time, led by sensational freshman QB Jameis Winston. Florida State has defeated teams by an average margin of 39.5 points per game, with only Boston College staying within 14 points of the Seminoles.
Miami owns an impressive win over Florida, but has struggled in its past two games in close wins over North Carolina and Wake Forest. The Hurricanes were 21-point underdogs to Florida State last season and covered in a 33-20 loss at home.
“Miami has been underdog of 20+ points only twice in 15 years, covered both times and they have dominated the spread battle with FSU to the tune of 7-1 ATS,” said Jack Randall.
An interesting totals trend sees the OVER prevailing at a 9-1-1 clip the past 11 games when Seminoles are favored by 20+ points.
The Seminoles sit at 7-0 (5-2 ATS) on the season; in comparison, the Hurricanes are currently 7-0 (4-3 ATS). Looking to wager on the totals? Florida State is 7-0 OU, and Miami is 3-4 OU.
